  • Guitarist Mark Tremonti recalled the story of the song to MusicRadar.com. "I love this chorus," he said. "When I brought it to Myles (Kennedy), I said, 'This one is very important to me; let's make it special.' The verses came from a riff I had; I built it up with some chord changes – at first, there were no chords – and it all came together after that."

    "I wanted to make the solo an emotional one," he continued, "so I kind of followed the chorus melody. Actually, this was the first solo I wrote for the record. I'm pretty pleased at how it turned out."
